I just had the same thing happen to me. There was a lightning storm here on Saturday night so, even though I have a surge protector, I assume that it took a surge. HERE IS THE SOLUTION! If you unplug the printer (pull the plug!) for at least 20 minutes (which lets the system discharge)then plug it back in, the system is allowed to reset and will fire back up when you press the power button. I know the above post is 3 weeks old, but I'm hoping this will help other searchers like me as well.

When the printhead goes bad sometimes the printer will not power up, if you can get to it you have to remove the inks and printhead and see if it powers up, if it does, don't put the printhead back in as you could damage the main logic board. Power supplies on these machines are very robust and seldom fail.

If it is only 3 months old, I recommend using the manufacturers warranty. The integrated Power Supply might be damaged.

Have a Dynex Wireless G Router I've used for some time now and suddenly can't get wireless connection. When working with it, I now cannot get a power light. When I unplug and plug back in to the power...

Did you try and wiggle the plug, at the unit, if the lights flash its a bad connection.

Check the power supply, as it first turns on, then check it after it powers down, if you have the same dc v then the power pack is bad.

But it sounds like the router is going bad, so the only thing you rally can do, depending on where you bought it and how old it is.

Say its only a few months old, and you got it from walmart, try and return it.

Contact the MFG through there website and find out if they will take
care of the problem, if any charges need to be paid, and the cost of shipping, put this all together and see if its just better to go buy a 50.00
new one.

I hope you get this resolved, and if any other questions just ask.

Our i560 suddenly will no longer turn on

Sure it is, try removing the inks and then the printhead. If it will power up with them out, you need a new printhead. Don't put the old one back in as you could fry the logic pcb. The printhead part number is stamped on the side.

Hello anava214

You said, your washer will not power up . Even the lights on the display panel are not turning on . And you have checked that the power outlet works.

Did you unplug the washer for 5 minutes and then plug it back in?

This can resets the system.

How old is the washer?

Unplug the power brick from the wall and the console.
Wait about ten minutes to half an hour.
Reconnect power brick to wall and console.
If nothing helps, you will need to setup a repair process through Nintendo Try calling Nintendo's support hotline, toll free:

Or using their online support:

Online support may not have the answer to what you need, in which case it will lead you to a webform E-Mail service to get personal help. They will be able to tell how old your Wii is through the serial number, and then the repair it for free since it is less than 1 year old.

FLM 3232 by Polaroid won't turn on

Usually TV's have that period of time where they'll turn off after an hour or two of no one pressing  a button. If the problem persists, You could get another one and return the old one with the new one's receipt.

Canon IPixma 4200 Won't Power On (occassional)

Go on an elimination hunt. Try connecting to a new power outlet altogether. If no go, try turning off and removing all cords, usb etc, reconnect. Then try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer to see if this corrects it. Post agian if no good.
